For best results, do not apply moisturizer or oil before using rms beauty cream eye shadows. The pure mineral cream shadow will moisturize the eye area more efficiently alone versus coming in contact with another product that could affect its relationship with the skin. Apply sparingly with fingers and blend in firmly for a better adherence. Repeat application for more color if desired. Please remember these are very sheer and results will be superior if applied with minimal product. If minimal creasing occurs, simply use finger to blend and smooth. Please note: These shadows are not guaranteed crease-proof in order to avoid usage of synthetic chemicals that age the delicate skin around the eye area.
